This month featuring
Lorraine Cholmondeley-Smith and Garry Ross
Taupō’s spirituality and inspirational lake and mountains create a stimulating environment for art. I am inspired by my surroundings their form, mystery and ever changing colour. These forms and colour have taken me on an abstract journey of exploring the spirit world and colour marking. To view more of Lorraine's work click here
I am inspired by the amazing colours of our natural environment. I love painting in oil as layer upon layer the colours come alive beneath my brush. Whether I am creating an iconic landscape or beautiful flowers my inspiration is always the creative process. To view more of Garry's work visit his web site or follow him on instagram
